Chicago weekend gun violence kills at least 10, injures more than 50

Five others were injured in that shooting, including an 11-year-old boy who sustained wounds to his leg.

At least 10 people were killed in the city and police say most of the shootings were gang related.

Around 12:23 a.m.an 18-year-old man was shot multiple times on the 4100 block of West Cullerton and taken to Stroger Hospital in guarded condition.

A witness of the shooting, 43-year-old Miguel Patino, was washing clothes with his grandmother when he saw the wounded man run up to the laundromat's door, which had been locked by an employee after shots rang out.

No suspects were in custody at last check. Meanwhile, over the weekend, crowds of different grieving families gathered in the parking lots of emergency rooms across the city as hospitals were inundated with patients wounded by bullets. A spokeswoman for Stroger Hospital disputes the police account. "At no time did Stroger go on bypass or "lockdown" its trauma unit". "We are asking the families of trauma patients to limit visitation at this time to immediate family members only so staff may focus on patient care".
